KOHORA, Sept 23 � As a part of the ongoing plan to improve infrastructure in Kaziranga National Park, a comprehensive proposal has been submitted to the Government and a detailed report regarding conservation and protection of rhinos and other wild animals in Kaziranga has also been submitted to the Gauhati High Court, informed Eastern Assam Wildlife (Kaziranga) DFO SK Seal Sharma.

Talking to this correspondent on the sidelines of �World Rhino Day� on Monday, DFO Sharma said that increase in the habitat area is very important as in the Kaziranga forest, only 0.2 sq km area is available for each rhino whereas a rhino requires 1 sq km for itself.

Sources said that increasing manpower is also important since with an increase in poaching in Kaziranga National Park, patrolling inside the forest and peripheral areas need to be intensified to check the killing of rhinos as well as other wildlife.

After much deliberation about merits and demerits of the electronic eye system , the Forest department has finally started installing three towers initially, informed DFO Seal Sharma, adding that the department is waiting for a green signal to operate the Unmnanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in Kaziranga forest to assess the ground situation, from the Government.
